This on-line home study course will familiarize you with the theory and practice of Shiatsu.
Shiatsu (a Japanese word meaning “finger pressure”) can be used to release and stimulate the energy flowing through your body — using just hands and fingers — to awaken the body’s natural healing modalities. The text for this course, The Book of Shiatsu, is the authoritative, step-by-step guide to this uniquely effective therapy. You with learn about chi, yin-yang theory, the five elements and the twelve meridians. You will learn simple meridian “makka-ho” stretches and hara breathing that you can do on your own to keep you in good shape as a therapist. And you will get an overview of what techniques a hands-on training would give you that can be applied to a variety of health problems, particularly:
• Arthritic conditions
• Emotional stress
• Headaches and migraines
• Intestinal disorders
• Menstrual and reproductive problems
• Muscular pain and tension
An understanding of shiatsu will give you a perspective that will more deeply inspire your work with your clients!
